14a^3- 3/a^2=426     [ I'll use "x" instead of "a" ]

 

14^x^3 -3/x^2 - 426 = 0      multiply through by x^2

 

14x^5 - 3 - 426x^2 = 0

 

14x^5 - 426x^2 - 3 = 0

 

 

This does not have an algebraic solution, DP   [ or, at least, I don't think that it does ]

 

There is only one real root at x = a  ≈ 3.12

 

There are also   4 complex roots

 

Here is the graph and solution  found by WolframAlpha :

16/n^2 * 2.352 = 425.32

 

Divide both sides by 2.352

 

16/n^2 = 425.32 / 2.352    and we can write

 

n^2 /16 = 2.352 / 425.32    multiply both sides by 16

 

n^2 =   16*2.352 / 425.32     take both roots 

 

n = ±√ [ 16* 2.352 / 425.32]  ≈   ± 0.297
